Six-Week Blog Hiatus

image

I am so, so happy to reconnect with the Blogosphere World after taking a 6-week hiatus in mid-November.  During my absence, Hubby and I traveled to Wisconsin.  We enjoyed the face-to-face time with the children, grands and friends over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

We came back home to face the monumental task of  decorating the inside and outside of our home for Xmas.  It was not an easy task for two people on the other side of 70 to:

  • dig out Xmas decorations and lights stored randomly in closets when space ran out in the garage.  I so miss my Wisconsin basement and attic space;
  • separate tangled lights, haphazardly pulled down and thrown in red containers when the season ended last year;
  • setup the 5-year-old artificial Xmas tree, which is becoming more difficult as we age and it ages; and
  • figure out how to work the new fangled laser lights purchased to heighten our holiday visual experience when focused properly.  We were not able to get the proper focus.

In between these tasks we readied the house and shopped for enough food to host our three children, five grandchildren, two cousins and one nephew for eight days.

When everyone arrived, seeing them and knowing that I would be in their presence for more than a week was the greatest Christmas gift.  The preparation tiredness disappeared and in its place happiness and joy entered my space.

Rested, Relaxed, Restored and Ready to Re-Start Blogging!

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!

  1. I’m so glad that you are rested, relaxed, restored and ready to start blogging again. I have missed you and was beginning to get worried. It feels like you’ve been gone a lot longer than six weeks!

    During your absence I wrote a five week series about my 1970 experience working across the country as a migrant farm laborer. I thought a LOT about you as I wrote those posts. I have been in India for most of that time. I am still in India and will be for another week. I have focused on the ashram flowers for a good portion of that time.
